Officers are appealing for information after a man was assaulted in Fochabers last night.
The incident happened at around 11.15pm in the Keith Road area. The man, who is in his 30s, was taken to Dr Gray’s Hospital in Elgin to be treated for injuries that are not serious.
DC Gary McTurk, who is leading inquiries, said: “I am appealing for anyone who was in the area around the time in question to get in touch if you have information which could help. In particular I would appeal for any details about three men dressed in dark clothing and any vehicles which were seen in the area around the time in question.
“I appreciate the area was likely to be quiet at this time on a Sunday night however the location where the assault took place is right next to a caravan park and it could be that someone staying in the area, or dog walkers, might have heard or seen something suspicious.”
Anyone with information is urged to contact police on 101 quoting ref. no. 5223 of Aug 25 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 if you would prefer to remain completely anonymous.
